New (ugly) Memorial Day Caps

For the second year in a row Major League Baseball is having its players wear special hats from Memorial Day through the 4th of July weekend, and will also be worn on September 11th.

All the proceeds from sales of the special caps will go to the Welcome Back Veterans organization. The caps will sell for $37. If you remember, last year's caps were blue.

I'm glad they're doing this for the veterans, I'm just not a big fan of red, and that's probably because of the Red Sox.

I didn't even like last years hat as much because it wasn't the right Yankee blue. But it was ok.

This one is just plain ugly.

(The Limp Bizket line was pretty funny!)

They shouldn't wear these hats for even a single second. Awful, absolutely awful.

the stars and stripes jersey is pretty bad too. if george was still the boss, and if woody had gone right to the police....this would never have happened.

wtf? What is more American then the classic Yankee jerseys and caps?

I will tell you what is more American than the Yankee's how about an American Soldier? You might not care about the Flag but WE DO

Greg Cohen said...

At ease soldier, I don't think B meant any insult by that.

What about Toronto? Since they are Canadien and don't celebrate our 4th of July, wouldn't it be a little odd to have them wear these caps too?

Greg Cohen said...

Yes, it is odd that they have them on too.
